Griffiths joins Eredivisie outfit

Dutch Eredivisie club Roda JC Kerkade have signed former Perth Glory midfielder Rostyn Griffiths on a one-year deal.

Griffiths, 27, joins Roda after a trial with English Championship club Birmingham City failed to result in a contract.

The Australian midfielder has signed a one-year contract with the option of a further year.

The Dutch club has previously been home to Australian players such as Graham Arnold, Gary van Egmond and Zeljko Kalac.

Roda boss Darije Kalezic said: “Several big clubs outside of Europe were interested in Griffiths, but because he wanted to play in Europe, this transfer was possible. That makes us both very happy.”

Griffiths will join his new team-mates in training for the first time on Tuesday.

Roda JC begins their Eredivisie season on Saturday August 8 at home to Heracles.
